This event will consist of two informative sessions aimed at helping Black and minority law students navigate the muddy waters of law school and the legal profession. Students will also have the opportunity to sign up for our Citywide Mentoring Program.

    Session 1 -  Mentors vs. Sponsors: 10:00a via Zoom

    • Panelists will discuss the importance and distinctions between mentorship and sponsorship. Attendees will learn how to find (and keep) mentors and sponsors, as well as how to leverage those relationships. We will also provide tips and strategies for networking and navigating relationship building in the pandemic.


    Session 2 - Exploring Legal Careers: 11:15a via Zoom

    • Our panelists will provide tips and strategies for navigating the legal market. Attendees will hear from new and seasoned attorneys on navigating your impending legal career. We'll talk internships, externships, and more. Whether you want to go into traditional practice in a firm, government, non-profit, a corporation, or something completely different an non-traditional, this is for you! 


    This is a MUST attend for law students of ALL class levels. Attorneys and law school grads are also encouraged to attend and participate in the conversation. We hope to see you all there. Zoom link will be sent upon registration.
